Governor Punjab Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar while suggesting reserved seats for Overseas Pakistanis in the National and Provincial Assemblies said that in addition to the right to vote, overseas Pakistanis should also be represented in the Assemblies through special seats.

In Azad Kashmir, the number of seats reserved for overseas Pakistanis should be increased. During the meeting, Lord Mayor of Birmingham Muhammad Afzal entitled Governor Punjab as the representative of Overseas Pakistanis.

According to the details, Governor Punjab Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar called on Lord Mayor Mohammad Afzal, Councillor from Brimingham Wasim Zafar, Mohammad Idrees, Fahim Kayani, Chaudhry Mahmood, Councilor Zafar Iqbal, Chaudhry Najeeb and overseas Pakistanis. During the meeting, various issues including the solution of the problems of Overseas Pakistanis and the politics of Overseas Pakistanis in UK were discussed.

After the meeting Governor Punjab Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar said that the PTI government as promised, gave overseas Pakistanis the right to vote but I think in addition to giving the right to vote, reserved seats in the National and Provincial Assemblies should be reserved for overseas Pakistanis so that they can be a part of important decisions in the country, including legislation, and it will definitely help solve the problems of overseas Pakistanis in a better way.

Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar said that Overseas Pakistanis must participate in the politics of Pakistan but at the same time they must participate in the politics of the countries where they live.

There was a time when Pakistanis were doing politics in Europe more actively than Indians but this is not the case today.

In order to increase Pakistan’s influence in European countries, it is necessary for Pakistanis to be active in the politics of United States, European countries along with the United Kingdom and apart from local bodies, take part in elections there as well.

In-sha-Allah, when all Pakistanis unite, and enter into the politics, victory will be their destiny.
